We've kicked off our NEW remote learning plan at Advanced Arts!
All Advanced Arts students are expected to participate in remote learning! Many of you have already been engaging with your teachers and completing work via Google classroom - thank you! Our remote learning plan clearly states when each class will be meeting online. If you have not yet engaged with your teachers, now is the time. Completed assignments will help your grade, while missing work will be marked incomplete until completed. Communicate with Your Teachers Regularly! If you are having trouble completing coursework, having technology issues, or are ill, let us know. Our main priority is creating a plan for your success. Each teacher and administrator will be holding a daily “office hour” where they will be available to provide immediate answers/feedback. Check Google Classroom for each teacher’s Office Hour.
Parents! Please encourage students to stay engaged in academic activities on a daily basis. Students will benefit from routine, encouragement and a strong partnership between families and school staff.
YOU can do this, WE can do this! Remote learning is new to all of us. Please be flexible, patient, and engaged as we embark on this plan. We believe this can be a positive experience that will assist your artistic journey, academic achievement, and educational goals. Share your hard work on your own social media as well! Want us to share your hard work on our school social media? Students can how submit work to be displayed on our social media! Click here to learn how to submit!
Our expectationsduring remote learning: 1.) Check Google Classroom and CPS email daily 2.) Create a daily plan, weekly schedule and get into a routine 3.)
